Champagne Chicken and Mushrooms

I tried this recipe tonight and it was fantastic and easy! I found this recipe in Southern Living Magazine.

Champagne Chicken and Mushrooms

1/2 c all-purpose flour with 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper added
6 boneless breasts-skin on (I used 4 skinless boneless)
2 T unsalted butter
2 T olive oil
1/2 cup minced shallots (about 3 medium)
2 (3.5 oz) packages shitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups champagne or sparkling wine
2 t fresh thyme
1/2 c whipping cream (oops! I used a whole cup!)
  1. Dredge chicken in flour mixture, let stand 15 minutes, dredge again.
  2. Melt butter with oil in large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Cook chicken in batches until golden, about 5 min a side - remove.
  4. Add shallots to skillet, cook, stirring often, about 2 minutes or until golden.
  5. Add mushrooms and garlic, cook, stirring often, about 10 minutes.
  6. Stir in champagne and thyme, bring to boil, stirring to loosen particles on bottom of skillet.
  7. Reduce heat, return chicken to skillet and cover and simmer 10 min or til done.
  8. Transfer chicken to serving platter, stir in cream and cook for 5-6 minutes until thickened. (I like real thick sauce so I added a little bit of water and cornstarch).
  9. Salt and pepper to taste, Serve sauce immediately over chicken.
